by Alyssa - 0 Comment(s)

We have introduced a creative writing contest for the month of November at the Saddletowne Library! We encourage any children between the ages of 7-18 to submit original writing pieces. Prizes in different categories are definitely involved, as well as the overall awesome feeling of creating something fantastic! All authors will retain the original copywright of their work - no work will be published by the library. Here are the details:

  • ALL work submitted must be original
  • Limist TWO entries per person
  • Contestants must be between the ages of 7-18

How to Submit:

  • Send an email to saddlewrites@gmail.com, or turn in hard copies at the Saddletowne Library!
  • Upload pieces in either .doc or .pdf file formats
  • Include your name, phone number, and age
  • SUBMISSION DEADLINE: Sunday, November 30th!

Yup, that's it.

Did you know that Everest author Gordon Korman began writing in grade 7? Alec Greven was just 9 years old when he wrote How to Talk to Girls. Eragon author Christopher Paolini finished the first book of his famous series at 15!

You could be next!
